Maryland: National Aquarium in Baltimore renovations completed

The National Aquarium in Baltimore has overhauled what once was a drab, leaky, concrete tank of mostly sting rays, adding 1,000 animals and 3,000 hand-sculpted coral replicas to create a colorful and massive new centerpiece exhibit. Teeming with life after the $12.5 million renovation, the tank now includes 65 different animal species, including an old favorite, the beloved 555-pound, three-legged green sea turtle named Calypso, and some new kids, including 20 blacktip reef sharks from Australia.
